Do very many Idaho Potato Growers grow organic potatoes?
Idaho potato acreage is 300,000 plus in any given year and only a small portion is dedicated to growing organically produced potatoes. This season about 1.6 million pounds or around 38 trucks were harvested and sold commercially. That compares to a little over 13 billion pounds raised conventionally by about 600 growers.
Here is a list of Idaho Organic Potato Suppliers (in addition to what is available at the local Idaho Farmers markets) when in season.

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
